About this title

Synopsis:

Now in Paperback

In Dime-Store Alchemy, poet Charles Simic reflects on the life and work of Joseph Cornell, the maverick surrealist who is one of America?s great artists. Simic?s spare prose is as enchanting and luminous as the mysterious boxes of found objects for which Cornell is justly renowned.

Store Description

The Herbert Morris Collection comes from the library of the award winning poet.
